Monthly News from Susan Miller — January 2023

Dear Reader,

Happy New Year.

The day after Christmas I came down with terrible cold, so I spent the holidays inside recuperating and am now starting to feel better. I was so relived and grateful it was not COVID. Because I love to cook, I had made a big batch of chicken soup with many vegetables two months ago, and I have been living on that all week. I am so glad I have it.

I am excited to be back out at public events to speak and meet new people and reconnect with the ones I’ve met over the years. Unfortunately, because I’ve been sick, I had to cancel a few January appearances, including the special one on January 7 in Dallas, which is now rescheduled for February 18 in Dallas from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM with a lunch afterwards. At lunch I’ll be available to talk one-on-one and answer any questions you have. The topic will be the Year Ahead 2023, and I am honored to give the keynote speech for the 50th Anniversary of the NCGR-DFW Astrological Society of North Texas in Dallas-Fort Worth(http://www.asntx.com). All guests are welcome. Even if you are not a member of the club, you can still attend. If you know my work, you know my talks are clear and easy, never mired in technical astro-speak. If you bought a ticket, please accept my deepest apology, and I hope you will consider exchanging it for the new date.

I am also due to give a speech in Houston at the Houston Astrological Society on February 4. You can visit the club’s Facebook page here to get all the details.

Now, let’s turn to January, which will be a sweet month because we have such a good full moon January 6 (in Cancer) and a gorgeous new moon January 21 (in Aquarius).

Just as vital to your happy experience in January, Mars will go direct on January 12. His little brother Mercury went retrograde December 29 but will go direct January 18.

As you see, the first few weeks of January will have a slow start, but that may be fine with you. Holidays can be hectic!

More to celebrate is the fact that Jupiter has come back to Aries to crown Aries the celestial favorite of the zodiac, set to receive a heaping portion of good fortune. However, outstanding benefits will go to everyone, as Jupiter will pour his golden light in one sector of your chart, which I outline in your January horoscope. Jupiter will remain in Aries until May 16. (Jupiter had been in Aries in 2022 as well, from May 10 to October 27.) Jupiter will be especially supportive to Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius as air and fire signs blend perfectly.

After that, Jupiter will enter Taurus, awarding that sign the celestial favorite crown for a full year, from May 16, 2023, until May 25, 2024. Again, everyone will benefit in different ways (I am putting the final touches on The Year Ahead 2023 for you, to be ready as an e-book soon). With Jupiter in supportive angle to your Sun, it’s always a sunny day—notably Jupiter’s move to Taurus will bring benefits to Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces—earth and water signs blend together so beautifully.

As you see, this year has chocolates and special good fortune for everyone.

When a big planet changes signs, that makes the look and feel of life different.

Saturn will finally leave Aquarius, having been in that sign since December 19, 2020. Saturn will move to Pisces on March 7, 2023, to stay until February 13, 2026. We all will take on new responsibilities and new goals as a result. If you are a Pisces, don’t dread Saturn—what you gain with Saturn you get to keep forever. I started Astrology Zone when Saturn was in Pisces.

Also in this coming year, we have the earth-shattering move of Pluto to Aquarius on March 23 to June 11, 2023. This is just a preview of what is to come in 2024—Pluto will be back permanently from January 2024 to stay 20 years, until January 2044. The new digital age is upon us! This is such an important move that it deserves an entire e-book, which I wrote called The Next 200 Years. It was a bonus chapter in my book last year, The Year Ahead 2022, but proved so popular with you, dear reader, and with the press, that I realized more people needed to see it, so I put it in a separate book for $4.99. It should be available on Amazon’s Kindle and BookBaby.com within days.

Pluto’s moves always bring about massive changes. When Pluto moved to Sagittarius in 1995, it heralded the start of the Internet and worldwide publishing. (Astrology Zone was started in 1995, along with Match.com and Amazon.com. A lot of the other sites didn’t last. You can look at the Wayback Machine on the Internet to see sites back then.)

When Pluto moved to Capricorn in 2008, we saw the worldwide financial crisis—Pluto was brought in to create fairer, stronger banking principles. Now Pluto moves to Aquarius, the sign of the future and all high-tech innovation! The inventions we will see will be exciting and ones you cannot yet imagine! As you see by these dates, Pluto wasted no time to get started with changes. Changes will come fast, like a freight train roaring down the tracks. We study astrology so that we won’t be left at the station!

One last note: Thank you for your enthusiastic support of my detailed 2023 Astrological Wall Calendar where I wrote every word and double-checked every date, so it took five months to write. Ilustrator Izak Zenou is back with his absolutely beautiful illustrations in rich color, printed on archival paper. Last year we were sold out by January 5, which was terrible! I self-publish, so I raised the print order so that should not happen this year. The cost is $26.99 plus shipping, handled by my fulfillment house outside of Chicago. We ship worldwide.

To order it, you can only get it from my website home page and click on the cover. Or go here.

Since there is so much to tell you in my calendars, we just couldn’t fit in when the Moon is Void, but you can find out which days the Moon is Void-of-Course and when it’s not. I have an app for that called “Moonlight Phases, Susan Miller,” available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play. Just search “Susan Miller,” and be sure the app shows a picture of me.

Happy New Year! I hope you enjoy every day of 2023.
